Issue 214 | October 2020


t has been good to see some of our regular groups starting to meet again, however at the time of writing there is talk of a further lockdown. It is worth contacting groups for their up to date plans before setting off to join them. We live in such uncertain times! The Inspero community food hub has now settled into its new home at Kempshott Village Hall. The hub continues to support vulnerable and elderly families across the Southern part of Basingstoke (Beggarwood, Hatch Warren, Brighton Hill, Kempshott, Buckskin and South Ham. (See page 17 for more details). Unfortunately for us our young volunteer deliverer on Longacre has now gone back to her education and is no longer able to assist. We are really grateful for the work she has done and she deserves a BIG THANK YOU. Is there someone in this area that would be able to step forward and assist in delivering from now on. Please give me a call on 01256 354282 or email Apologies for the smaller print in this edition but we have had a lot to cram in this month, but not quite enough to go up an extra 4 pages. Please keep the news coming in.

In the last edition of the Kourier I wrote about returning to my volunteer role at the Neighbourhood Police office in Parklands. My first returning attendance was to an empty office, but the following week was very different with many officers present, resulting in a very short visit. That’s the problem, in that policing demands mean that social distancing and PC availability can never be guaranteed. Of over 180 mail message in my Inbox, very few needed urgent NW attention. To try to help with mail routing, I have set my police e-mail auto-answer to refer to my BDNW e-mail address and so far, only 1 mail has been redirected to me. As a result of this, I am considering fortnightly or even monthly police visits as well as maybe changing location to the PIC where it seems that social distancing should be much easier. Very few Alert messages have been issued and the small number of Press Releases received, have been put onto the BDNW website for any interested persons to read. Also the latest Crime Prevention advice from Inspector Lane will be there by the time you read this update.


I have noticed that around our area there are many NW signs in poor condition. In some cases I know that replacement overlays have been supplied but do not seem to have been fitted. In a few cases, it seems obvious the NW interest is no longer there, thus giving criminals confirmation that nobody is bothered or watching the area. Unfortunately signs are now quite expensive and so the local association may not be able to continue with free replacements and may have to charge a nominal fee. As National NW said in their recent campaign, “Life’s safer when you know your neighbours. With more people looking out for unusual behaviour, burglaries and other crimes can often be prevented”. A properly signed and working NW area goes a long way to keeping things safer. Are you part of NW and is your local scheme working ? Do you want to start a scheme ? Although Ourwatch allows persons to propose themselves as ‘Self Declared NW Coordinators’, Basingstoke has always had a policy of police checks to try to ensure that any potential new coordinator has a clean record before commencing any NW role. So far, despite the COVID difficulties, several new coordinators and schemes have been checked and approved around the borough. As pupils return to schools, it is worth mentioning the sad fact that in the Hampshire Police area, the number of young persons carrying weapons has more than doubled. For everyone’s safety it is vital that parents are aware of what their young persons might have about their persons. Much better to have an early police official warning, than an injured child or even far worse. Similarly with meetings of large groups of persons of all ages - please obey the rules to stay safe. A concerning issue that has come to light is that NW coordinators including myself are being contacted by phone or e-mail about crimes taking place. It is vital that the person witnessing any crime in progress should themselves report it straight away, to the police using 999 if necessary or to 101 or the police website if it is not urgent. In virtually all cases, police need to refer back to the witnesses, if and when an investigation needs to take place. Don’t be afraid to make that call, our officers are quite easy to deal with and they do appreciate help from the public. At BDNWA the committee is considering ZOOM meetings instead of face to face gatherings. We had an initial ZOOM meeting a few days ago and it went really well. For the duration of COVID-19 my police email is unlikely to be available and I’m still volunteering mainly from home, please send feedback and comments to which gets sent on to me so I can respond, but please allow a few days for a reply. Kind regards

Brian Adams

Kempshott Junior School Governing

We are so proud of all of our children for their brilliant transition back to school, the families who have supported them and our staff for their continued hard work. Thank you to all and stay safe! Autumn term has started with the summer sunshine which has enabled continued outdoor learning and time out in the fresh air. New books have been started and ambitions set for this year. Year 3 have become brave adventurers, Year 4 are becoming volcanoes experts, Year 5 have set sights on maintaining their super hero status and Year 6 are exploring the emotional subject of World War 2. Kempshott Junior School continue to support Spotlight charity this year due to the complications of last year! Whilst the school are raising money for Spotlight through sweet sales, ice cream sale, a non- uniform day for mental health The Rabbiter - April 2009 support in schools and a film club, Spotlight are supporting the school and have offered a range of exciting things to pupils including sports clubs, English tuition, Maths tuition and language tuition! Here’s to a great year supporting a charity that supports so many of our families in Kempshott, In Basingstoke and the surrounding areas.

E: | | T: 07951 660401 Welcome back! It’s been so lovely welcoming our children back to Kempshott Under Fives. We haven’t seen some of our older children since March so it’s been very exciting seeing how they’ve grown and our new children have all settled in fantastically. Children and staff are all very happy to be back to the preschool routine. We’re really impressed at how well the children have adapted to the new hygiene measures too, they are all amazing at washing their hands. At the start of any new academic year change is ahead for our little ones and the first few weeks of settling into a new environment is a time of crucial importance to a child's later happiness within a setting. There is potential for more transitions as children move through the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) than in any other stage of the education system. A child may move from home to a childminder, onto a playgroup, then into nursery and finally into school - all before they reach their fifth birthday. Transitions are our highest priority and as such we plan with the individual needs in mind, building confidence and resilience through gradual change. Our first few weeks are always about helping our children settle in, helping them to explore the new environment, make new friends and get to know staff. All children are individuals, and while some children will adjust fairly easily and quickly to new routines, others will take longer to feel comfortable and secure. At Kempshott Under Fives we work hard to ensure that all children settle happily. Our first topic “All About Me” is a great chance for the children to learn all about themselves, their new friends and their families. We use stories, arts, crafts and songs to help our children discover what is unique and special about themselves and each other. We’ve had some gorgeous weather to start our new term so the children have been making the most of the garden. We have a new outdoor water channel wall, which the children love, it’s been especially popular in the warm weather. Over the summer holidays the Community Payback Scheme removed posts from the maze at Beggarwood Park, these were kindly donated by the council to one of our staff members who has transformed them into amazing planters for preschool. The children will be busy this year growing lots of vegetables in their new planters through the different seasons. We’ll soon be starting our topic of autumn where we’ll be enjoying lots more time outdoors collecting sticks and leaves to build bug hotels and hedgehog houses. KEMPSHOTT UNDER FIVES AND THE EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE (EYFS) Kempshott Under Fives work to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework in all our activities. The EYFS sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to five years old. At the start of any new academic year change is ahead for our little ones. Will they see new teachers? Stay at preschool for a longer amount of time without Mummy or Daddy? Will they be starting their school journey for the very first time? One of the areas of the EYFS is 'PSED' which stands for Personal, Social and Emotional Development. A large part of what we do here at Kempshott Under Fives is to ensure that we bond with your children and encourage their confidence building. We would encourage and observe a little one to see if, between the ages of 22 and 36 months, they can separate from their main carer with support and encouragement and also express their own interests and preferences. If they are not quite ready we work on it together. It is lovely to hear your little ones asking for a particular toy that may not be out on that day...and yes we will get it for them. Kempshott Under Fives is based in St Mark’s Church on Homesteads Road and has a lovely main room and a wonderful garden. We still have spaces available for this academic year, to enquire about a space please contact Melissa, Preschool Manager, on 07951 660401 or at

NEWS FROM CRANBOURNE We all returned to school on Monday morning and it is great to have the school full again! We have all missed each other!

Our plan is to keep ourselves and our community super safe, so that we never have to close again. We have a high level of infection control, students and staff have adapted to the “new normal” with ease. After a summer of uncertainty, the GCSE results came through and were well deserved. We congratulate the Class of 2020 again for their excellent GCSE and for their great resilience and commitment despite a turbulent final year of Secondary School. We wish them luck as they start their journeys at College and in the workplace. The most exciting news came this week. After years of trying, we have had Planning Permission for our new school Swimming Pool! The new pool is just as big, but has a state of the art, environmentally sustainable roof, heating system and changing rooms. We want to thank our Dutch and German Architects, 4 Green Architecture for their amazing plans, which will provide an important community resource for all of us for years to come! Headteacher

Mrs Aplin,

Wouldn’t it magical to be transported to a world with no imperfections, But humans have their own choices and thus we face the consequences. But let’s just sit and imagine, A paradise so spectacular and eye catching. With so much love and euphoria, With a happy future hereafter. To Imagine the most amazing waterfall in front of me, Its good to dream to be transported to another dimension, Full of hope in my mind i feel serenity. With nobody to hinder or any intervention. I never want to let go of this idealistic surrounding, Moving forward and upwards no regrets, I want to keep hold it’s mine it’s astounding. Just going with the flow with no summit. To dream to wish for better, is fine, Like a piñata being excitedly struck by a child, Maybe all we need is time. To have the splendid contents that it holds inside.

Ms M Kelson

They go bump in the night Whilst typing at night I saw a movement from the side Making me alert and my eyes opening wide But I couldn’t see anything, nothing was there

Not sure what to do now as I’m here all alone Would people think I was silly if I picked up the phone Who would I phone my mum or my dad

Just me in my study in my big swivel chair Then it was a door clicking in the night Uneasy and worried, should I put on the light What was that deep moan is it the plumbing gone wrong Should I wait till the morning to get the plumber along

But maybe 999 if it really gets bad Pulling my hair I am now all agog Then I remember, I’m looking after dads dog.

UPDATE BY BASINGSTOKE & DISTRICT DISABILITY FORUM (BDDF) YOUR LOCAL ADULT DISABILITY CHARITY. BDDF quickly responded to lockdown by moving our services on-line. We focused efforts on tackling isolation for our members by providing support virtually. Offering both weekly coffee & chat and chair yoga sessions. We also continued to provide our signposting activities which help those with disability related queries. BDDF are slowly reintroducing face to face yoga, whilst continuing the online sessions - both are free to attend. We are also exited to announce our brand NEW weekly Walking Group which again is free to attend, open to all abilities and strictly follows Government group guidelines. Funded by ‘Energise Me’ these social walks are already being thoroughly enjoyed by our members, an opportunity to make new connections whilst getting exercise and fresh air. Our next annual disability information day will take place in The Malls shopping centre on Friday 26th March 2021. If you are a local disability service or business operating in Basingstoke and are interested in exhibiting do get in touch. Over the summer BDDF organised Chineham and Sherfield Park’s first ever Scarecrow Trail. With 5 awards all voted for by the public, the community spirit shone and competition for the coveted title of ‘best in show’ was fierce with 91 displays all based around the theme of books. Our local charity partner for 2020 was the incredible Sebastian’s Action Trust who support children and the families of children with life limiting and life threatening illnesses. We are so grateful to everyone who supported, entered a scarecrow, sponsored and donated raffle prizes and of course our volunteers. Thanks to you all it was a huge success raising over £5k. The feedback suggests we would be welcomed back. We plan to reach out in the new year to seek volunteers to be part of the 2021 organising committee. We will always find a way to continue supporting the disabled people in our community. Currently our offerings include weekly virtual Chair Yoga & meditation; Walking Clubs; and Online Signposting and Support groups. We would love to hear from you whether you have feedback, ideas on how we can best serve our disabled community or if you would like more information on our current services – become a member of our BDDF community follow us on Facebook @BDDForum; email us uk or call 01256 423869.

THE EASIEST WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT “I thought about losing weight once, but I don’t like losing” I could sit here and say eat less and move more, but what does that actually mean? I could sit here and say all you need is a consistent calorie deficit #ccd But what does that actually mean? There are many easy ways to lose weight - but if you have no other information to grab onto other than a slippery “eat less move more” no wonder you’re still trying to figure it out. But no fear, Food Is Life is here! I’m going to give you 3 really simple starting points to start losing weight, you can start with 1 tip, work on that and then add another when you’re ready, or jump in with all 3, completely up to you! #personalised 1. Reduce your portion size, whatever is taking up most room on your plate, reduce that portion by 1/3 or ½ (excluding veg) 2. Decide what time of day is your “snack weakness” 3. Once you have done that, you’re officially not going to eat snacks during those times 4. Drink 1 more litre of water daily than you currently are Keep yourself accountable by using a water bottle to measure your progress, the idea of these 3 tips is to cover the “eat less” portion of the weight loss equation. The reality is there are many ways to reduce calories. But you’ve got to find what works for YOU

12 Kempshott Wildlife,

Green Space


In previous years in October Fuzzy Drove Conservation Group volunteers would be starting to coppice the Hazel which grows in Fuzzy Drove, coppicing is a woodland management method in which the wood from a tree is harvested by cutting a suitable tree near ground level. It subsequently regrows over a period of years without needing to be replanted. The two photos show one Hazel which was coppiced a year ago and the other two years ago, as you can see the Hazel thrives and puts on a lot of growth which is straight and ideal for use as garden poles for flowers and beans. Coppicing is done on rotation, small areas of a woodland are cut each year in sequence leaving the areas not being cut to grow on for between 15 and 20 years for chestnut, and about 7 - 10 years for hazel. When an area of coppice is cut, it is all cut down, and creates a clearing. This periodic coppicing encourages the individual trees to live for many years. If the coppice cycle is managed correctly it can increase biodiversity in the woodland because of the beneficial effects of varying light levels reaching the woodland floor, and the range of different aged trees and stools in the woodland. The best time to coppice is in the autumn and winter when the sap has gone down, and certainly well before the sap rises in the spring. In southern Britain, coppice was traditionally hazel, hornbeam, field maple, ash, sweet chestnut, occasionally sallow, elm, small-leafed lime and rarely oak, beech, sessile oak, ash or beech standards. In wet areas alder and willows were used. You may have noticed that the half of the Drove towards the cycle path and farm fields is narrower as the undergrowth is doing well, this is due to the fact that the council lorry is not using the Drove to collect rubbish from the bins but instead using the roads to access them. This will help the Drove’s wildlife while also making it a safer area for us all to enjoy.

Please bear in mind if you are having any bonfires to check for Hedgehogs which may be starting to hibernate as the weather gets colder.

Our War on Ragwort. We have an excellent relationship with Worting Scouts. When they approached us to suggest suitable work that individual "socially distanced" groups of scouts could undertake, we jumped at the chance. There were a number of jobs, but after a site walk with one of the leaders, we plumped for them pulling Ragwort on Down Grange Meadow, as this did not involve bladed tools, such as secateurs or loppers. The first session was at the end of August and while the turnout was restricted due to fine weather and families being on holiday, a substantial amount of Ragwort was lifted. The picture shows the "socially distanced" group with the results of their efforts, not a spike of ragwort in sight! More………………………..


and Conservation AND CONSERVATIONNews NEWSfor FOROctober OCTOBER Despite the hard work, this did not put them off and they are planning to return for a number of shorter sessions. Ragwort is a potentially invasive species and while we like a little to encourage the Cinnabar Moth, a spectacular pink moth which we recorded for the first time earlier this year, you can, as the saying goes, have too much of a good thing. Fungi Warning. After some spectacular rain, we noticed a rash of mushrooms in the "Jubilee Copse" section of the Meadow. These turned out to be Brown Roll-Rim (Paxillus involutus). They are common mushrooms which are deadly poisonous, so should not be touched and definitely not eaten. Work Party Dates. We will be publishing our planned dates in next month’s Kempshott Kourier, but upto-date information on whether a session will go ahead and what restrictions apply can be found on our website "".

Old Down & Beggarwood Wildlife Group

The trees and bushes on the two sites are now displaying the beautiful colours of autumn. Both sites have lots of dogwood which in autumn turn to the most beautiful shades of orange, tan and red with bunches of berries that start off red and then turn to black. This is an attractive shrub as it gives the most beautiful colours during the seasons but sadly it does have to be kept in check by removal or chopping back because it is so robust and invasive and can overwhelm other plants. At this time of year there are very few wildflowers about but there are some late ones such as scabious and toadflax. There are three strains of scabious on the sites - field scabious, small scabious and devil’s bit scabious. The first two are a pale lilac; the latter is darker with a slightly smaller flower head that is a fairly tight globe. They are very attractive to insects such as hoverflies, bees and butterflies.

Field Scabious

Devil’s Bit Scabious

Common Toadflax

During October the Council will be mowing various parts of Old Down (as agreed with the Group). In the coming weeks and months the Group has plans to plant tree saplings, hedgerow shrubs and snowdrop bulbs. And there is much tidying up and cutting back to be done. So help is needed please. Work Parties – At last the Council has given the go ahead for work parties to start. It is hoped that the first work party on Old Down will be early October (meeting at the Hall at 10 am) but please check the Group’s website and Facebook page (Old Down and Beggarwood Wildlife Group) for confirmation of the exact date. Unfortunately we have not yet been able to arrange work parties on Beggarwood. Please look at our Facebook page for regular photos of the sites and their wildlife. Internet:



HOW AND WHY I BECAME A GP The Probus Club of Basingstoke heard from one of their members, Dr Nick Waring, who was a partner for many years at the Gillies Health Centre in Brighton Hill, about what prompted his medical calling.

His father was involved with the St John’s Ambulance Brigade and that he also manufactured surgical needles encouraged Nick Waring’s interest in medicine. Joining the Welsh National School of Medicine in Cardiff in 1966 he qualified five years later although training and exams carried on for several years. He recalled many instances during student training that showed that practicing on patients was part of the curriculum. There was a saying “see one, do one, teach one.” Two examples that demonstrated how medicine had progressed was when he had to clerk (take a history) of an octogenarian who, when aged only 3, had been operated on by Lord Lister, the man who introduced antiseptics. Another was when his professor of bacteriology told that he had once been tasked with transporting, in his briefcase, the “world” supply of antibiotics. The first baby he delivered as a student arrived on a hot and humid evening (no air con then), the day man landed on the moon. It was a boy and, of course, named Neil. His first paid job was in Southampton working for Prof Donald Acheson, the first Dean of the new Southampton medical school who went on to become the national Chief Medical Officer and then to work for WHO. Even though now qualified as a doctor, vocational training was being developed which involved two more years in various jobs in hospital followed by another year as a trainee. At this stage he could have been accepted into a general practice and after 3 years working up to parity he could become a full profit sharing partner. Unlike today, there were very few GPs then salaried or part time or indeed female. To gain further experience, after Southampton he had three jobs in Cardiff, a stint in Wrexham and returned to Cardiff for a trainee year. Having spent a year in children’s medicine he could see that there was great competition in Wales for higher positions in paediatrics with demanding work rotas and further exams. General practice seemed an altogether better option and he has never regretted it. In 1972 he started in Basingstoke as a GP with a personal list growing from 0 to 3,500 in about eighteen months. This needed an on-call rota system working one night in five with a full day’s work either side. Probably half of the maternity patients delivered under the care of the practice and it was surprising how many went into labour in the middle of the night. There were no mobile phones in those days so out of hours calls came from home via a pager necessitating finding a phone to re-plan the route around the patch. His low point came when he was called out of bed five times after midnight. The change to the Hantsdoc co-op came just in time as most GPs were on their knees. Patient records were, in those days, hand written on cards, kept in a brown envelope and stored in filing cabinets. Introducing computerisation made a significant difference allowing the practice to tailor their provision of service to improve care although for a few years, as required by the NHS payment system, they had to duplicate information by maintaining hand written records. It does mean that with increasing work loads patients have less continuity of care as ancillary staff take on more of the roles traditionally carried out by a GP. It is a very different job to the one he started out with. Since retiring in 2007, despite his medical experience, he has become increasingly aware of how difficult it is to know when to seek medical help. He appreciates how much more problematic it can be for people to decide either to self-care or use the medical service responsibly. But it is better to call unnecessarily than not call at all when you need to. See

BASINGSTOKE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY The last time we were able to meet was back in January when Chris Bird from Sparsholt talked to us about potatoes. Our February meeting had to be cancelled at the last minute following late advice about the access road to Kempshott Village Hall being closed due to resurfacing. Then came the virus lockdown and the rest, as they say, is history, All of our remaining meetings for 2020 have been cancelled but most of our speakers have been rebooked for 2021 in the hope that by then we will be able to meet. Our in-house competitions were also suspended except for one which took place in mid-August. This was the heaviest yield from one seed potato grown in a bag or container. Chris Bird’s talk in January was certainly timely and many members took up the challenge despite the early difficulties with the seed potato distribution. At the time we were told that it was a “second early” but not its name. Just prior to when we were scheduled to harvest our potatoes, Dave Buckland, our competitions secretary, told me that this year the variety was “Marfona”. It is not one we have grown before but, according to one website, it is said to produce large tubers, stores well, is good for baking, boiling and general purpose and has a fair resistance to blight and scabbing. However, I did notice some scabbing on a few of ours and on pictures that some members sent me. There were certainly some large tubers, one of ours was 451g but Angela Pope topped that with one weighing in at 568g. Congratulations go to our winner, Brian Bicknell, whose crop weighed in at 3808g. Not a bad return from one seed potato which was probably no more than 100g! Here are Vida Sinden (Chair of BHS) and Dave Buckland presenting The Thompson Memorial Cup to Brian Bicknell marking his remarkable potato growing ability this year. Seems like neither want to let go and Brian, socially distanced of course (!), eager to get his hands on it. I am pleased to say the rightful recipient now has the Cup! Interestingly Dave tells me that Ernest and Amanda Thompson were his maternal grandparents. Ernest was a cabinet maker but ended his working life making seed boxes for Laxtons nursery in Bedford. No wonder Dave was reluctant to let it go with such a family connection. Horticulture has obviously paid a big part in his family through the generations.

INSPERO COMMUNITY HUB Inspero Community Hub is still up and running supporting the areas of Buckskin, Beggarwood,

Hatch Warren and Kempshott as agreed with Basingstoke Council and the local MP at the beginning of the pandemic.

Our volunteer team also includes St. Marks Church volunteers, including the Reverand Nicola Such and volunteer drivers from Caritas Basingstoke.

If you would like to donate funds, any amount would be appreciated via Many thanks for your support.

18 Question Why make a Will? Answer Helen Beach, Wills and Estate Planning Solicitor, replies: I am often asked “When is the right time to make a Will?” There are obvious circumstances when individuals think about making or even changing their Will. The most common scenarios I am faced with are: After having a child When you have had a child you may want to ensure appropriate guardians are included in your Will in the event you or your partner passes away. Buying a property If you want to ensure a cohabitee, who perhaps isn’t invested in the property, has a right to live there for their lifetime whilst ensuring the capital for named beneficiaries or children remains protected. This is a fantastic mechanism for the preservation of capital for other family members, whist ensuring the person with the benefit (life tenant) has a roof over their heads (subject to paying the outgoings). With the increase in second marriages, this type of request is becoming more popular. If you are a business owner A business owner may want to ensure their business is disposed of in a tax efficient manner or again to ensure an individual inherits the business on their death. Relationship breakdown The breakdown of a marriage or relationship is another important time to make a Will. If you were to die before the divorce is finalised, your soon to be ex-spouse, will inherit your estate (or at least the first £250,000). In contrast, if you are engaged, you can make a Will now that remains valid post-marriage. Many people do not realise that marriage cancels any Will previously made, unless it is specified to have been made in contemplation of marriage. Without a Will, many of these circumstances would go unaccounted for. The rules of intestacy would apply and the next of kin may be responsible for administering and receiving your estate, something which may be undesirable. If you would like to review your Will, make a new one or discuss estate planning generally please contact Helen Beach on Tel: 01256 320555 or email Do you have a legal query? Email and the answer may be printed in the next edition of the Kempshott Kourier.

BASINGSTOKE CITIZENS ADVICE TRUSTEES AT CITIZENS ADVICE BASINGSTOKE Working Together, Making a difference, Supporting our Community Trustees are the people in charge of a charity, and at Citizens Advice Basingstoke we are extremely fortunate to have a team of 7 Trustees. We thank them for the work they do. They play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity’s work. Our Trustees ensure Citizens Advice Basingstoke has a clear strategy, and that its work and goals are in line with its vision. They safeguard the charity’s assets – both physical assets, including property, and intangible ones, such as its reputation. They make sure these are used well and that the charity is run sustainably. The Chair of our Trustee team, Ian and a trustee, Terri make the following comments: Ian- ‘Sometimes it is easy to forget, that to provide a professional service, to those who need help and advice, it needs more than just the people who give the actual advice. At Citizens Advice we have many different types of volunteer, from all walks of life. One important role is that of Trustee, where we are responsible for making sure that we have the funds, resources and strategic vision to keep our service running. Terri joined us this year, and these are her reasons for joining.’ Terri – ‘I joined the CAB as a trustee at the beginning of this year. I was attracted to the role due to my experience and observations of the amazing, good work of the CAB staff and volunteers assisting members of the public with a huge range of issues. Life as a trustee has proved hugely rewarding. We have a fabulous team of both paid and voluntary staff, who are totally dedicated to providing what is a vital, free service of advice and assistance. It is wonderful to see the responses from clients as they move from real concern and often crisis, to information, help and solutions, often finding that their lives are completely turned around by being able to find a sympathetic listening ear providing the right advice and a way round the problems that were previously facing them. And this has been especially true during the pandemic when the whole operation of the organisation was turned from in person appointments to online, web chat and telephone in a matter of days. The commitment of staff and volunteers to make this work and to continue to provide everyone that needs it with the advice and support that they require has been extraordinary.’

The Future: We have had several fundraising ideas. However having touted them to various organisations whose cooperation/ permission we would need, we have had nothing but negative responses. It appears that the pandemic is being used as an excuse to block anything that might involve people in a bit of work or initiative.

PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE When it comes to thinking about the future of your loved ones it is important to have plans in place to cover all eventualities should anything happen to you.

Many people put off planning for the future because it is something they would rather not think about, or choose to worry about it at a later date – after all few people like to face up to the eventuality of their passing. If this sounds like you, your loved ones could be left with some very complicated issues to resolve at a difficult and emotional time. It is worth remembering that if you do not make a Will, when you die your estate will be dealt with according to the Rules of Intestacy, where the law dictates who inherits your estate. This may be against your wishes, especially if you are unmarried or live with your partner. At Phillips Solicitors, our expert lawyers in our Wills and Probate team, understand the importance of planning for the future. That is why we specialise in providing clear, straightforward advice so you can make informed, positive decisions. In addition to drafting and reviewing Wills, we offer a wide range of other services too. These include dealing with your affairs after your death through our probate service, where we wind up your estate with sensitivity and understanding and help your family get through what can be a very confusing and upsetting time. We can arrange for Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) to be set up, so that someone can take care of your decisions in the event that you lose capacity, maybe as a result of an accident or illness. Our team can also arrange and administer trusts to ensure your assets are protected and your family is looked after. To find out how we can help you plan for the future, please contact Lucy Watson, who is the head of our Wills and Probate team, by emailing or by calling 01256 854646.

Sainsbury’s Kempshott


Our Values Make Us Different

Christmas & Charity Collections Covid-19 has thrown many challenges to the way we work at our stores during the last six months. Sadly, although not unsurprisingly, Sainsbury’s has taken the decision to postpone Christmas Collections, Carol Singing and bag packing across all stores. We’ll still be supporting the Royal British legion Poppy Appeal, although there will be no poppy sellers at our stores. Instead, colleagues and customers will be able to donate digitally, via Smart Shop or ‘Rounding-Up’ their bill at any of our checkouts. We’ll have plenty of posters and prompts placed around the store with more information, once the appeal launches. Following the success of the Brighten a Million Homes Appeal last year, we’ll be supporting two charities from the beginning of December, for food donations. Inspero and Basingstoke Foodbank who have supported our communities during the Covid-19 Pandemic, will work together to distribute food donations during December. We’ll also offer the facility to donate at the checkouts and Smart Shop, with funds distributed equally at the end of the campaign. Local Hero Our Local Hero scheme is still very much alive. The scheme allows our colleagues, who volunteer in their own time, to request a grant of up to £200 per financial year, to the organisation they volunteer with.


We regularly donate over £6000 each year through the tremendous volunteering efforts of our colleagues. However, we’re certain that many more ‘Local Heroes’ are out there, volunteering in our community, who we haven’t found yet. So, if you know someone, who works for Sainsbury’s and, volunteers at your club, charity or community orgainsiation, drop us a line and we’ll distribute these funds. The process usually takes between 8-10 weeks. Grocery Online Orders Our delivery service continues to grow at a phenomenal pace. At the beginning of September, we delivered over 800 orders in just one day; that equates to close to 50,000 items of shopping.

Kempshott W.I

It is a huge understatement to say that 2020 has not turned out to be the year any of us would have wanted or expected, with the ongoing pandemic resulting in loss, heartache and loneliness for so many. We have tried to keep in touch with as many of our members as possible and shall continue to do so for as long as we are unable to meet together. Please believe me when I say we share your frustration, as although National Federation constantly provides guidance on WI meetings etc based on current legislation, the rules and interpretation of them changes so fast we can barely keep up. Last month I believed, as did many others, that as far as Covid 19 was concerned we seemed to be getting our lives back under control. Our WI had tentatively started to make plans to move forward, hopefully for meeting again in December or January. We had discussed possibly having two meetings a month, one on our old Social afternoon and one on our normal meeting day later in the month with the members being divided into two groups at least in the short term. Sadly with the rise in the number of people testing positive, this idea has ceased to be viable, particularly with the new introduction of draconian restrictions on groups gathering together, so where thirty would possibly have been manageable, six definitely wouldn’t work. In the meantime I do hope all our members are keeping safe and please remember if you have any questions or concerns you can contact either our President Barbara Hutton 01256 460475 or one of the committee. 1084 or our President Barbara Hutton 01256 460475.

26 Throughout various times of the year we receive letters or emails to the editor where readers express their concerns about various occurrences within the community. The most common ones relate to bonfires in the Autumn months and more generally thoughout the year comments about inconsiderate parking, cycling or parking on the pavements. We would like to point out that we do publish a disclaimer at the bottom of the Useful Contacts page (inside back page) stating that 'The publishers cannot accept responsibility for views expressed by contributors or for the accuracy of claims made by the advertisers'. The concerns expressed by the authors of these contributions are genuine concerns of those writing in and it is a way in which they can highlight the 'nuisance' this behaviour is causing them. It may appear to some that a knock on the door of the person causing the nuisance would be an easier option, however in this day and age people cannot always feel confident that such an approach will not lead to verbal or even in some cases physical abuse.

ALGORITHMS AND COMPUTATIONAL THINKING Computational thinking (CT) is a process used to solve complex problems. Whilst historically linked to computer programming, there’s a growing number of educational experts trying to introduce this style of problem solving in to the classroom as it can help solve many other issues. In fact, in terms of its importance, some educators believe that CT should be taught alongside reading, writing and arithmetic. Computational thinking involves looking at a problem systematically and expressing the solution in such a way that a computer, human or machine can understand. There are four key steps to computational thinking: ● Decomposition - breaking down a complex problem or system into smaller, more manageable parts ● Pattern Recognition – looking for similarities among and within problems ● Abstraction – focusing on the important information only, ignoring irrelevant detail ● Algorithms - developing a step-by-step solution to the problem, or the rules to follow to solve the problem The process of decomposition is to take the task or problem and work out the best way solve it. A simple example would be making a cup of tea. Working through all the steps to achieve the right cup of tea requires precise analysis. Missing out a simple but crucial step will result in failure. For example, if your first step is “switch on the kettle” then you’ve made the assumption that there is water already in the kettle, but this might not be the case. A more complex example is taking a completed project, such as a car engine, and then working backwards to understand what’s required to make another one. A classic example used to demonstrate CT is summing all the number from 1 to 200. You could start buy adding 1+2 to get 3. Then add 3+3 to get 6 and keep a running total. Whilst this works, it’s not particularly efficient, especially when the number count could increase from 200 to 13,232. An easier solution is to take 1+200 and get 201. Then take 2+199, which also equals 201, 3+198= 201, etc. That leads nicely to Pattern Recognition. By spotting a pattern to the problem we can often simplify the number of steps required to solve the issue. In our simple example, we can already see that taking the ascending low number and add to the descending high number, we always get 201. Pattern recognition is also about looking at other problems and finding similarities. Planes have used the science of aerodynamics to create machines that fly in the air but car manufacturers saw how smoothing parts of the bodywork helped to make cars more efficient by directing airflow around the body in a more effective way. Formula 1 cars use the exact same principle of an airplane wing but instead of creating lift they turn the wing upside down to create downforce allowing the car to exert more grip when cornering. Abstraction is a key part of the solution as we need to identify what’s not important. And issue can become more complex when focusing on unnecessary elements. For instance, with the “cup of tea” example, we don’t need to know how the kettle works. We just need to understand that in order to get hot water, the kettle requires water and power. Abstraction is linked to pattern recognition. If you are asked to draw a series of cats you know the general characteristics, which are common to all cats, eg eyes, a tail, fur, a liking for fish and the ability to make meowing sounds. In addition, each cat has specific characteristics; such as black fur, a long tail, green eyes, a love of salmon and a loud meow. These details are known as specifics. In order to draw a basic cat, we do need to know that it has a tail, fur and eyes. These characteristics are relevant. We don't need to know what sound a cat makes or that it likes a specific type of fish. These characteristics are irrelevant and should be filtered out through abstraction. If we look back at the simple equation, we don’t need to make a note of ALL the pairs because they are all the same. We just need to know how many pairs. We can determine how many pairs of numbers are needed by simply dividing the 200 by 2 giving us 100 pairs. From this we can create a simple formula. (200 + 1) * (200 / 2) = 20,100 The last step is the Algorithm which involves creating a step-by-step instruction to solve the problem. A classic, and complicated algorithm was used during the Apollo 13 disaster. The three astronauts went into the Lunar Module however, the module wasn’t designed for three astronauts together; only two. The extra astronaut overloaded the carbon dioxide scrubbers in the lunar module but there was a problem. The lunar module used cylindric scrubbers while the command module used cubic ones. So, the NASA ground crew have to formulate a solution and write clear instructions on how convert the scrubbers. This list of instructions is the algorithm. In our maths example, we can break this down into three simple instructions. 1) Add the highest and the lowest number together. 2) Divided the highest number by 2 and, 3) Multiple the result of step one with the result of step 2. The hardest part of creating a good algorithm is making the correct assumptions in the first place. And as we know with the recent A-Level debacle, someone, somewhere failed to identify all the important data!

A service to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts. A time to pause and reflect on war and conflict and pray for peace. In our Remembrance service, we remember those who gave up their lives for their country especially those who lived locally. Our list of names is somewhat limited with no details of the most recent conflicts. If you have any local knowledge of service personnel who lost their lives during in recent times; from 1970’s onwards we would be pleased to add them to our Roll of Honour. Please contact the Parish Office on the details above. Remembering is important and this is the season for it….
